This simple and healthy granola recipe has become a staple in the Landers home. It is perfect on yogurt, with fruit or in a acai bowl. This recipe rivals my favorite KIND Granola which is truly saying something. A major bonus is how sweet our house smells when it’s cooking, for a short ten minutes. I love how you can switch out different nuts and sweeteners, the possibilities with this granola are endless.

Flatten mixture onto silpat.

Remove from oven and let cool before serving.
*We added dark chocolate to our second batch once it cooled down and it was delicious!
